As production continues on Avengers: Age of Ultron, we still don't have too many confirmed story details regarding this highly-anticipated Marvel Phase Two sequel. Mark Ruffalo, who plays Bruce Banner and The Incredible Hulk, recently teased that Joss Whedon is at the top of his game, and that the Avengers are dealing with a lot of widespread hatred towards them after S.H.I.E.L.D. came crumbling down.
"Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers. This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They're really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality. The Avengers are really struggling with their own shortcomings and the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where they go and who they are in the world. There's a lot of negativity towards them."
The actor also teased that his character Bruce Banner is »
The Hulk has had two shots at the big screen so far, and while both films have their fans, neither is exactly beloved. By the time Mark Ruffalo suited up to play Bruce Banner in The Avengers, fans had already become divided on the issue of who the Hulk and his human alter ego really are. That paradox is among many issues why the hero hasn't popped up in his own movie recently, with the 46 year-old Mark Ruffalo not exactly being the sort of actor on which a big budget blockbuster can depend (which is also where ensemble rumors come from). Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Ruffalo was surprisingly quite forthcoming on the issues the character presents in terms of being the center of a feature film, noting that his Hulk would be considerably more introspective. "I think that.s the ticket forward for Banner, to start to figure out where »
Thanks to San Diego Comic-Con this week, we've been learning quite a bit about Marvel's most-anticipated outing next year, Avengers: Age of Ultron. Among the things revealed last week was that some of Earth's mightiest heroes want a break from saving the world, which will ultimately set their newest foe in motion. However, Mark Ruffalo recently explained a bit more of what the Avengers will be going through next summer. "Joss [Whedon] is in his full height of his powers," the Incredible Hulk actor told USA Today yesterday. "This movie is much more sprawling and epic than the first one. They’re really in an existential, dire crisis. It has a darker quality. The Avengers are really struggling with their own shortcomings and the dissolution of S.H.I.E.L.D. and where they go and who they are in the world. There’s a lot of negativity towards them. »
With Marvel Studios recently announcing a slate of seven untitled movies that spans into 2019, it’s possible we may get an answer to the question at Comic-Con this week.
If a Hulk movie isn’t among them, the answer is probably: Never. At least, not with Ruffalo in the lead, since he has been open about the fact that his own age, 46, starts to become a problem for a superhero – especially if we’re looking »

Badass Digest, who broke the supposed big Star Wars: Episode VII plot scoop yesterday, claims to have sources deep inside Disney, and this time they are reporting that Joss Whedon will most likely not return to direct The Avengers 3. They go onto claim that James Gunn is being groomed by Marvel to take over the franchise. Which makes sense if we're to believe that the Guardians of the Galaxy team will show up in this impending Marvel sequel.
Badass Digest points out that James Gunn is signed to do a second Marvel movie, though the title hasn't been revealed. They also point out that most Marvel directors never make it to two movies, Jon Favreau and Joss Whedon being the exception, and Jon Favreau will never return to this Cinematic Universe as a director, at least for the time being (of course that could change). It sounds like Joss Whedon »
Take another look @ images from the set of the "Avengers" sequel, "Avengers: Age Of Ultron", including actress Elzabeth Olsen as 'Scarlet Witch', actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson as 'Quicksilver', a stunt double for 'Captain America' (who looks like he could play 'Commie Smasher' Cap from the character's 1950's comic books), plus stunt doubles for 'Thor' and 'Iron Man':
Scripted and directed by Joss Whedon, the new film features an ensemble cast that also includes Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Jeremy Renner, Samuel L. Jackson, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen and James Spader:
"...'Age Of Ultron' reportedly opens immediately after the 'Baron Von Strucker' post credit scene in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'.
"'The Avengers' as a team attack the 'Hydra' cell run by Strucker.
"He has the staff of 'Loki', 'Chitauri' weaponry and the corpse of a 'Leviathan'. »

After two mildly successful cinematic outings in the form of Ang Lee’s Hulk (starring Eric Bana) and Louis Leterrier’s The Incredible Hulk (featuring Edward Norton), Marvel’s green rage monster seems to finally have some undeniable momentum, largely thanks to Mark Ruffalo’s well-received portrayal of Bruce Banner in The Avengers. Due to his bromantic chemistry with Tony Stark and the smashing of a “puny god,” the character was viewed as one of the film’s highlights.
With newfound interest in the Hulk, there are many clamoring for a new solo film which would give Ruffalo a chance to carry an outing on his own (the actor has even said the Click to continue reading Kevin Feige Explains Why ‘Planet Hulk’ is Not The Next Step

By now you will have heard the news that actor Andy Serkis – best known for his motion capture roles in The Lord of the Rings and the rebooted Planet of the Apes will now have a role in Avengers: Age of Ultron. It had been announced during early stages of production that Serkis would be helping out Mark Ruffalo with the motion capture for the Hulk. However, recently that Serkis revealed in an interview that he was not only helping out Mark Ruffalo as a motion capture consultant, but that he will also have a role in the much anticipated sequel from Marvel Studios.
So fans have already begun speculating as to who Serkis will play and it is fair to assume that his role will be motion capture. The most popular theories include the motion capture for »

Earlier this month, we reported that the long-rumored Planet Hulk story line may be used in the impending sequel Guardians of the Galaxy 2. This would follow the Guardians as they team-up with Hulk on another planet and go on an adventure with him. The end of the movie finds r Hulk returning to Earth along with the Guardians, which leads the villainous Thanos to make his way to Earth.
"I can answer that question very easily: it is absolute, 100% bulls--t. It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There's not going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never a plan for the Hulk to team »
Both Ruffalo and Marvel chief Kevin Feige have dismissed the idea on several occasions. The most recent report went as far as suggesting the "Guardians of the Galaxy" sequel could include plot elements from the storylines due to events that are rumored to take place at the end of "Avengers: Age of Ultron".
"I can answer that question very easily: it is absolute, 100% bulls--t. It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There's not going to be a 'Planet Hulk' movie, there was never going to be a 'Planet Hulk' movie, »

Earlier this month a rumor suggested a possible sequel to Guardians of the Galaxy would feature a "Planet Hulk"-esque storyline allowing Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner a way into the cosmic side of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Guardians director James Gunn, however, tells The Playlist that rumor "is absolute, 100% bullsh*t... It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet." Yeah, that stupid Internet! It's so dumb! Taking things further Gunn says, "There's not going to be a 'Planet Hulk' movie, there was never going to be a 'Planet Hulk' movie, there was never a plan for the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy - I wouldn't want the Hulk to team up with the Guardians of the Galaxy! And it's all a bunch of complete bullsh*t." To that I have to say, »

With Marvel setting a host of release dates through to 2019, there’s a lot of expectation that the studio will take the opportunity to announce its Phase Three line-up this coming Saturday at the San Diego Comic-Con International. Among the contenders for the slate of as-yet-unrevealed movies is another standalone feature for The Incredible Hulk – and of course, when there’s talk of a Hulk movie, those Planet Hulk rumours are never far away. Well, chatting with IGN, Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige has once again poured water on the speculation, stating that…
“I think what’s cool about the Planet Hulk story is it’s all Hulk. He’s a gladiator, he’s fighting all these creatures on another world. Yes, some of those creatures show up in [Guardians of the Galaxy], which makes people think, ‘Oh, maybe it could exist.’ And maybe it could exist, someday. I don’t think that’s »

Back at the beginning of the month, a rumor swirled that predicted plans for the future of The Incredible Hulk within the Marvel cinematic universe. Obviously, the big guy will be an integral part of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, but what about after that? Will Marvel Studios give him another standalone film? Mark Ruffalo believes they're working it out, and then we got word that Hulk might end up crossing over with Guardians of the Galaxy in a sequel that would see the cosmic superhero team encountering the mean green machine. However, director James Gunn has now denied those rumors, but we're not surprised. If you want to avoid potential spoilers, stop reading, because we're going to recap what led to this rumor to begin with. Supposedly, the end of The Avengers: Age of Ultron sees Hulk being blasted off into space during the final battle Ultron. A Quinjet gets launched into space, »

Ever since a rumor over a year ago popped up that claimed Marvel Studios was considering a "Planet Hulk" film for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, many fans have become consumed with the notion of the film. Despite being debunked by Joss Whedon and The Hulk himself Mark Ruffalo, the rumor wouldn't die and even lead some to speculate a Guardians of the Galaxy sequel could see The Hulk team up with that group in a crossover film. Now, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn have come forward to say, once again, that it isn't happening. »
The rumors have already gone into overdrive. First they said the Hulk would return in a movie adaptation of "Planet Hulk". Undeterred, the rumor mongers then said "Planet Hulk" would become the Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel , with Mark Ruffalo sharing the screen with the likes of Chris Pratt and Groot. And now, with the film about to be released, director James Gunn can address the Hulk/Guardians rumor. And he says they're poppycock. Speaking to Drew Taylor at The Playlist, Gunn completely washes his hands of a Guardians Of The Galaxy sequel featuring the Hulk. "I can answer that question very easily: it is absolute, 100% bullshit. It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet. There's not going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never going to be a Planet Hulk movie, there was never a plan for »
A lot of Avengers: Age of Ultron details have been coming out over the last week. There's so much cool stuff to get excited about! It's going to be awesome we we get our first look at some footage, which is expected to premiere at Comic-Con later this week! In a recent interview with EW, Mark Ruffalo talked about Bruce Banner, a.k.a. The Hulk, and his relationship with Black Widow in the film.
“He’s trying not to Hulk-out. He knows all the science of his body, what does anger, what does excitement do physiologically speaking. You can’t have deep breathing and anxiety at one time. So he’s worked on controlling this stuff, he knows what he has to do to do it while it’s going down I’m just laying in there because I don’t know how else to be. It’s basically »

If there’s one thing that Marvel fans seem to be clamouring for right now, it’s a standalone Hulk movie featuring the likes of Mr. Mark Ruffalo, who took on the role of cursed scientist/superhero Dr. Bruce Banner in The Avengers, and has yet to be glimpsed in another Marvel Cinematic Universe venture since (well, unless you count that brief cameo at the end of Iron Man 3, that is, and we’re not going to).
There were several rumours circulating last year, of course, with regards to a “Planet Hulk” movie, which – based on a popular comic book – would see the big green transformation launched into space and facing off against a variety of creatures in an arena somewhere that wasn’t Earth. These rumours were shot down by Marvel Studios, who said that they didn’t have any plans to develop or release a Planet Hulk movie at that time. »

Ever since The Avengers, there has been lots of buzz around The Incredible Hulk. Despite having two attempts at solo films- which both under-performed- it would appear that Joss Whedon's use of the character was what finally sparked the imagination of the masses. That, and Mark Ruffalo's strong portrayal of Bruce Banner. Since then, much has been made about what Marvel would like to do with the character's scene-stealing popularity. Our own El Mayimbe once exclusively reported on plans for a film based on the Planet Hulk books, and his claims were more or less verified when concept art for Thor: The Dark World was released that showed that- at one point- Marvel was toying with the idea. The art showed characters that first appeared in those books, like the Oldstrong and Kaifi.

We've seen a lot of rumours about a possible Planet Hulk movie, and lot of denials as well. Both Kevin Feige and Mark Ruffalo have dismissed such a movie due to the fact that it would result in almost no screentime for Bruce Banner, but a recent report claimed that the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel would feature some huge plot elements from that series based on some spoilery details they claimed to have about the ending of Avengers: Age of Ultron. In a recent interview with The Playlist, the site asked director James Gunn about these rumours and he made it clear exactly what he thinks of them. "I can answer that question very easily: it is absolute, 100% bullshit. It feels like a great relief to finally say this after all the dumb stuff on the Internet.""There's not going to be a 'Planet Hulk' movie, there »
